A heartrending and heartwarming saga of the Birmingham blitz, from the author of DANNY BOY.
Lizzie is finding that life in the Birmingham blitz is hard.
Her husband is away fighting in the Second World War and she has regretfully sent her two young children away to her parents in Galway, knowing that they will be safe there.
She's grateful for her job in munitions but not so happy when that means getting home in the blackout, dodging the bomb damage.
Then Lizzie is attacked on one such journey. She comes around battered and bruised, unable to remember the full extent of the attack - but she fears the worst, and is right to.
Turning to her family in desperation, she is told she has brought them nothing but disgrace.
Yet help is at hand, from the most unlikely place...

Review by Corazie
ALL MEN ARE EVIL.<br/><br/>AND SO ARE NUNS.<br/><br/>Okay, so maybe it's only 99% of the men in this book who are evil. But goodness, I was sick of it from the very start.<br/><br/>Lizzie just has one thing after another after another after another AFTER ANOTHER happen to her and it's infuriating. Things just get worse and worse for poor Lizzie up until the sickeningly predictable ending.<br/><br/>It was more of a chore than a guilty pleasure and I would not recommend it to anyone.
